Before EnShape, the status quo of 3D sensor systems fell into two categories. There were either devices with the ability to do fast measurements with low accuracy,or the capability to be very precise but slow. Here the company began developments and consequently designed a new system that combines speed – ten measurements per second is possible – and precision and is perfectly suitable for industry application.
“Basically our 3D sensors give robots eyes,”says CEO Dr. Martin Schaffer, who leads EnShape together with fellow physicist Dr.Marcus Große. These eyes are needed in the companies’ two main target markets. On the one hand, there is inline quality assurance, where the product line ‘Inspect’ can be used for reliable and consistent quality management.
